Reading Series One Samples

Reading Series One decodable books are longer versions of the Emergent Reader "Companion" titles with more complex vocabulary and story structure. These books provide students, now in the full alphabetic stage of reading, with the opportunity to consolidate skills they learned in the Emergent Reader Series. No new phonics skills are introduced, so instruction can focus on continued development of automaticity, fluency, prosody, and close reading skills. Reading books with increasing text complexity but familiar story lines helps students comfortably adjust to reading more advanced texts. Once students are adept at reading Reading Series One decodable books, they will be ready to move into Reading Series Two and Three.
